Memento Mori literally means "remember you must die" and is the term used to refer to mourning art which includes jewellery. Sugar skulls, popularized by Cinco de Mayo celebrations, are a popular example. Evidence has been found as far back as Neolithic times. It isn't a morbid concept but rather a reminder that we all die, regardless of our social status, so make the best of your life. Coffin rings have become popular in recent years and adopted by various belief systems as symbolic.
I usually make these on a custom basis, however, I have had many requests for these rings so I made up five in Sterling silver and different gemstones and sizes for sale:
Green Onyx size 9
Labradorite size 7
Agate size 9
Rhodonite size 8
Amethyst size 8
All except our smaller gemstones are hand-cut and polished in our Merrickville studio.
